Klamath Bird Observatory, in partnership with The Selberg Institute, is launching a new citizen science project on the beautiful Sampson Creek Preserve in southern Oregon. This project offers something for all birders and outdoor enthusiasts whether you prefer to casually stroll through oak meadows or are up for a multi-mile off trail adventure.
The project will take place on a large parcel of private property along Sampson Creek. This property is in the foothills of the Cascades mountains and holds a variety of oak habitats as well as coniferous forests and riparian woodlands. Just outside of Ashland, Oregon it is a terrific spot for birding and will give the public a unique opportunity to visit and bird in diverse habitats managed for conservation.
Training Date: April 15th, 2017 in Ashland, OR
Survey Dates: Every 2nd and 4th Saturday throughout the year
Protocol: Include some walking and/or hiking, recording all birds observed by sight and/or sound, and entering and submitting your findings into eBird Northwest. Final protocol to come

This project will also include two guided night surveys to inventory the local owl population for those interested.
